I need help with drawing in Babylon js

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm trying to learn Babylon js and it's my first time using it ☺️.

I'm doing a kind of planetary system and the planet's movement can be changed using a slider. I also draw a circle made with lines (the orbit) to show the path followed by the planet when the slider also changes. But I have problem: I don't know how to remove the  previous drawn circle. So as a result when the planet changes its orbit, many circles are still drawn.

Something like this:


Here is a part of my code inside createScene function:


//Creation of slider
var slider = new BABYLON.GUI.Slider();
slider.minimum = 0;
slider.maximum = 1;
slider.value = 0;
slider.horizontalAlignment= BABYLON.GUI.Control.HORIZONTAL_ALIGNMENT_RIGHT;
slider.height = "20px";
slider.width = "200px";"10";
for(var i = 0; i < div; i++){
slider.onValueChangedObservable.add(function(value) {
e = value;
a = Math.sqrt(-(b*b)/((e*e)-1));
text.text = "Excentricidad: "+(value);
for(var i = 0; i < divArray.length; i++){
Path.push(new BABYLON.Vector3((b * Math.cos(divArray[i])+offset.x), (0+offset.y), (a * Math.sin(divArray[i])+offset.x)));
var lines = BABYLON.MeshBuilder.CreateDashedLines("lines", {points: Path, dashNb:500}, scene);
scene.beforeRender = function () {
planet.position = new BABYLON.Vector3((b * Math.cos(Math.PI*(MitadDiv*alpha))+offset.x), (0+offset.y), (a * Math.sin(Math.PI*(MitadDiv*alpha))+offset.x));
sun.rotate(BABYLON.Axis.Y, Math.sin(-0.001), BABYLON.Space.WORLD);
planet.rotate(BABYLON.Axis.Y, Math.sin(2 * -Math.PI/180), BABYLON.Space.WORLD);
alpha += 0.09;
return scene;
